Calima Surf runs two summer camps for adults during the summer months (July, August and September):
There are hundreds of surfing schools across Spain, Portugal and the Canary Islands and many students arrive at Calima Surf having already done a beginners surfing course. Many of these programmes are short in length and have lessons just 2 hours a day.
Since opening in 1996, Calima Surf has always strictly followed the British Surfing Association programme which consists of an intensive 25 hour-a-week course. We always advise our participants not to rush their learning. It will be a waste of time if you end up on the wrong course and a good learning base is fundamental for you to feel completely safe in the rough sea.
Calima Surf instructors have years of experience of teaching and will always tell their students the same thing: Don't be afraid of the sea but make sure you respect it!
Our instructors, throughout the duration of this course, will give you the best possible preparation for a surfing trip to a rocky beach, depending on the weather conditions, as for us, safety comes before everything.
For this surfing trip, where you will be surfing on a rocky beach, there are some criteria that you need to meet before you can be allowed to go. If the instructors see that you are not 100% ready, they will advise you to stay on Famara's sandy beach and carry on developing.
We usually go to la Santa, Caleta de Caballo or the Codito de Famara. Although the waves here are not hugely difficult to surf, it is important to watch out for other surfers in the area:
